A common cause to your problem is a faulty oil pressure switch. This monitors the oil pressure and when defective, can falsely trigger the low oil pressure light. If the switch is good, the oil pump may be bad. Listen carefully for "ticking" under the hood. This would be a sign of insufficient lubrication to the lifters/rocker arms.

Impala low engine oil pressure


Could be oil pooling in the valve cover caused by a partial blockage of the drain gallery, but you'd almost certainly get a oil low message too. I assume the oil and filter is changed regularly? You could try adding Marvel Mystery Oil, about 12oz for about a hundred miles and then change the oil and filter. Depending on your level of adventurism, you could drain the oil and replace it with new oil, except add a quart of automatic transmission fluid in place of one quart of oil. Some people say ATF is bad for seals, some people use ATF to rejuvenate leaking seals. I don't know who to believe. Run that for 100 miles and change the oil and filter. I've even seen someone replace their oil with kerosene and a quart of oil and run it at idle for 5 minutes, then change the oil and filter. Instantly freed 2 stuck lifters and the engine was fine.

Best bet would be to run the Marvel Mystery Oil first. Then, if the problem persists, either change the pressure sensor and see where that gets you or go for the ATF in the oil trick.

What does it mean when the message "STOP ENGINE, Oil pressure low on a 2007 impala


it means the oil pressure is low and may be low enough to damage the engine if you keep drving/running the engine. it would help if you could tell us the actual oil pressure, engine and mileage . basically, the oil pressure may be low enough to wreck your engine, then again it may be bs......

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

I have a 2006 impala. On the highway the dinging wont go off on the oil light. It says oil pressure low turn off engine but I changed oil today. The dinging just wont stop!! What's wrong??


Hi stevie, your Impala probably has a defective sensor, often called a "switch" that senses the oil pressure. The oil light and chime is a result from a false signal from the bad sensor.
But one cannot take a chance. If the sensor is acting properly, and pressure is low, it could really damage your engine to have low oil pressure and oil not pumping properly. Have it checked now. A new sensor should cost about 60 dollars & takes only a few minutes to install.

Good luck. i hope this helps. Please rate me a FixYa.

The "low oil pressure -


It could be. The best is just follow your instruction manual on what type the oil should used on your car. But since your car is has the year 2006, it should use specs. API... SL or SM. The viscosity will has range 5W30 -10W40. Again don't get be cheated by the newest oil products, The best oil for your car is the one recommended on your manual in many aspects.
